Today is your very first birthday! We made it through our first year together! This has been the most joyful, blessed, and exciting year of my life. We have grown together, laughed together, and certainly cried together! You are constantly learning and doing new things every day. It's amazing to stand back and watch you grow into a little boy more and more each day. I am so proud of the beautiful little boy you are becoming, but I hate to let the baby side of you go! You have brought so much happiness into our lives and you are so very loved! We cannot imagine our family without you in it!
A year ago today, I dreamed of the person you would become. I prayed that you would be absolutely crazy about me! I worried that I wouldn't know what in the world to do with you. Luckily, you made it all easy on me. I never imagined the love we would have for each other. I was never anything special until I became your mommy. When I held you for the first time, I knew my life would never be the same. I never knew I could love someone so very much.
I am so thankful God gave you to me! I am so blessed to be your mommy and have you in my life. I look forward to many more birthdays with you and watching you grow into the wonderful man I know you will be.
